What is a dry feed?
Dry dog food is, as its name implies, one that is characterized by being dry, generally in the form of balls commonly called kibble for dogs. It is the most traditional of all types of dog food and has a wide variety of brands and options to meet the needs of your dog. Our dog cannot choose his diet alone, so we must be the ones who decide on the best option for his needs.
Benefits of choosing a dry feed
There are several benefits of opting for a dry feed and we will review them below.
First of all, dry preparations contain a higher concentration of calories and protein than wet feed. This is positive, since both properties help to keep our dog strong and healthy. On the other hand, by presenting higher levels of protein and calories, the amount of feed necessary to meet the needs of our dog is less.
Also, being the most popular option for pet owners, there are a huge number of options to choose from. From premium products to inexpensive products. With all kinds of flavors (chicken, meat, salmon, turkey, etc.)
Another notable benefit of this type of feed is that the rigidity of the balls or shapes helps to keep teeth strong, to avoid tartar and to take care of your general dental health. This is very important, since there are several races that suffer from oral problems, especially tartar on the teeth.
Finally, it is also necessary to point out that this type of food is much easier to preserve, since it not only takes up less space, it is also easier to store than other types of feed. This type of dog food is also easier to find than wet food or homemade preparations.

How to choose the best dry food for my dog?
When choosing the ideal dry feed for our dog, we must take into account many factors, among which the quality of the feed, the age of our pet, its size, its state of health and also our power stand out. purchasing. We will break down all these points below.
Feed quality dry
It is probably the most important point of all. A good quality feed must have the adequate amount of protein, but this is not the only thing. There are some elements that are valued positively in feed (the inclusion of fresh fish, vegetables, eggs, and other natural foods), as well as there are negative elements (cereals, those feed that have high fat values or those that contain coloring agents , preservatives or flavorings). It is always good to know the percentages and where all the ingredients come from, that is why those feeds that detail all these items are the ones that generate greater confidence.
Age of our pet
This is another very important factor, since once we have found the ideal feed for our dog, we must take into account whether it is for puppies, adults or older dogs. The difference between these products is the amount of proteins, vitamins, minerals, etc. Since our pet will not spend the same energy being a playful puppy as an older dog. For this reason, it is important to pay attention to which of the options we choose so that all the energy needs of our dog are adequately satisfied.
Obviously the size of our dog influences the choice, since small (or toy) dogs do not have the same needs as large breed dogs. In addition, the size of the feed is also different, so once we have chosen the feed that we like the most, we have to find the version for our dog's breed.
This item is also very important, since the health of our pet is directly affected by the feed we choose. But there are also special feed for those pets that need extra care (for example, there is light feed for those dogs that are overweight, or feed that helps the joints, etc.)
And we come to the end of the list, with an item foreign to the pet, but not alien to reality. And it is that although we all always want to give the best to our dog, it is also true that we cannot always buy it. Nor does it mean that the most expensive feed is the best, this is not always the case and therefore it is necessary to know how to look for the nutritional characteristics of the food. There are brands that are not that difficult to acquire and that have excellent quality, even better than premium brands.
